The study summarizes findings of the national study reports with concern to the papillary patterns (fingerprint patterns) of the leading athletes in different sports. The study findings were applied to produce a fingerprint-specific selection algorithm for different sports with application of dermatoglyphic phenotypes, delta indices and papillary ridge counts. As demonstrated by the study data and analysis, the most informative phenotypes for selection of female prospects are the WL phenotypes (loops and whorls counts with domination of whorls or equal counts of loops and whorls), LW phenotypes (domination of loops in the papillary pattern) and ALW phenotype (arches, loops and whorls); and the most informative phenotypes for selection of male prospects are the WL, LW, ALW  phenotypes (arches, loops and whorls), 10L type (10 loops) and AL type (arches and loops). The papillary markers based selection algorithm may be successfully applied to detect the individual predispositions for football, volleyball, basketball, academic rowing and skating sport in the male prospects and for swimming, cross-country skiing, aerobics, rhythmic gymnastics, taekwondo and fencing in the female prospects.

Keywords: dermatoglyphics, papillary patterns, delta index, ridge count, sport disciplines, fingerprint phenotype.
